Barnacle Bistro is a must stop! Keep in mind it is a very small restaurant, but great food run by very nice people. It's probably a good thing I am not a local, I would want to eat here everyday!

We had lunch here on our entry into Gold beach. Great fish and chips and clam chowder. A tad pricey but seemingly, that's the general cost of many, if not all, of the restaurants here.

I had the soup & salad lunch. The soup was great, fresh salad with homemade dressing - all good. They also make their own hot sauce, also good. Service & atmosphere were great. Small place but comfortable. I will be going back.

The food was fresh, and I would say clean...the menu is eclectic and it's different than the greasy spoons you expect in this little costal town. We had a large salad, Mediterranean chicken and couscous, seafood tacos and clams. All in all I felt the...More

Great food, music, service, and atmosphere. Had the sports bar feel without all the hype. The menu was a little small and didn't match the one online, but overall great food!

Freshest fish and tasty menu selections. The family owns Fishermans Direct across the way. They also serve local beers and wines.

Wonderful food from an eclectic menu. Interesting parings make for some great creations. Home made tomato soup was very good. The Big Cheese was fantastic as were the Wasabi Fish Tacos. Our family each got something different and we traded tastes across the table. Good...More
